Excellent Work

“Just wanted to let you know that your work crew was excellent. Thanks for your professionalism.”

Jack C.

A Historic Moment

“Today  water began flowing to our customers. A bit of clean-up, replace the Brown’s gate, and we will be finished. One bit of history I remember tells me that this is the first project of this magnitude since the Empire State Building to finish ahead of schedule and (slightly) below budget. Thank you for your support.”

Peter S.

I only deal with Superior

“I DO NOT deal with any other bolted tank company, period. I deal only with Superior because of Huel, and he makes sure I get the best product that Superior has to offer and Huel stands behind what he puts his name on.”

John G.

Superior was one of my better decisions

I can tell you that I was extremely happy with the professionalism of the entire process from design to install. Superior was one of my better decisions while running Saltwater Disposal of North Dakota

  • How Much Does A Bolted Steel Tank Cost?

    Tuesday, August 8, 2017
    33 Years of Bolted Tanks

    One of the first questions we are asked is “how much does a bolted steel tank cost”? Unfortunately, the answer is a little complex as the price of a bolted tank is impacted by a variety of factors. Elements include storage tank design specification, relevant local building codes, quality of raw materials, scope of work included in the contract, manufacturer experience and tank installation team skills/training.

    The various design specifications such as AWWA D103, NFPA 22 and API 12B determine tank appurtenances, shell design, steel thickness and even tank size in some cases. For example, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) D103 standard applies to all bolted tanks used for potable water storage and mandates the interior epoxy coating is NSF 61 certified. Bolted tanks for fire protection need to comply with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 22 standards which requires specific tank components such as tank heating systems when needed and reinforced concrete ringwall foundation. When a bolted tank is used for oil storage, the American Petroleum Institute (API) 12B standard is commonly used as a reference but tanks do not have to comply. However, for customers desiring a guaranteed level of quality, the API 12B monogram program ensures the tank meets very specific design criteria and the bolted tank manufacturer is API Spec Q1 / ISO 9001:2008 certified.

  • How Seismic Use Group Classification affects your Water Storage Tank

    Wednesday, May 17, 2017

    Seismic Use Group Bolted Tank

    When purchasing a bolted steel tank or a welded steel water storage tank, one of the key criteria determining the design parameters of the tank is the Seismic Use Group (SUG) classification. The term Seismic Use Group is essentially the same as the terms Occupancy Category and Risk Category used by the International Building Code (IBC) and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The Seismic Use Group classification is used to determine the magnitude of environmental loading applied to the bolted or welded tank structure. Despite the name, the Seismic Use Group classification is applicable to other environmental loads such as wind, snow, ice, and floods.

    The Seismic Use Group along with the seismic accelerations at the site help determine the Seismic Design Category of a structure. Seismic Design Category is a letter rating from A to F with F being the worst case. There are special detailing requirements depending on what Seismic Design Category a structure is in. For example, with steel water storage tanks, the seismic design category impacts how the anchor bolts are designed.
